Common Problems With Starting Jeeps

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

replacement-engineWhen it comes to starting Jeep engines, the three basic elements needed are air, spark, and fuel. There are a variety of issues that can affect whether or not your rig cranks including heat, cold, fluids, and wear and tear on Jeep parts and cables.

Here are a few scenarios and remedies for getting a Jeep started. Keep in mind, there are different fixes for different models – what works for a contemporary 4-liter Cherokee won’t necessarily work for an older YJ. And before you go through too many diagnostics, always make sure you have fuel. Read More→

THE BATTLE OF THE BAJA

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

unnamed (13)Colorado Springs, CO 11/18/14 - We have had several class wins in the Baja but the race is not something you ever really conquer. No matter how many times I race there, it never fails to drop my jaw. It has little to do with a typical American desert race, it is the Baja 1000. The only thing you can prepare for is for everything to go awry. At times the race is peaceful, other times intense with screaming crowds, often terrifying with unseen hazards hiding in a sinister haze.

WE TAKE AN EARLY LEAD

I had the privilege of driving the start of the race this year for the BFGoodrich Tires BC-1 car. The start definitely falls in the “intense” category and I loved every minute of it. The excitement and hazard of the fans lining the course has no equivalent. Fans try to touch the car as it goes by and dumbest of all – even lie in the road on the far side of jumps. While a wild ride, we made it through with nothing but positive experiences and put 35 miles on the 2nd place car in the first 308 miles.  Read More→

Rigid Industries gets rough with testing standards, Osram LEDs provide impressive results

Rigid Industries, a leader in forward projecting LED lighting, partnered with Osram Opto Semiconductors to provide tough, extreme tested products for its new off-road night vision lighting series – the E- and SR-series. These new Rigid infrared (IR) night vision lights complement the full line of Rigid’s visible LED off-road lights. Both versions feature Osram’s high quality, high reliability, infrared LEDs (IRED) and visible LEDs.

unnamed (10)The new night vision systems from Rigid feature IR Oslon Black LEDs, supplied by Osram Opto Semiconductors because they are similarly tough with superior reliability. IR Oslon Black delivers IR illumination for night vision operation and, with more than 1W at 1A total optical flux,  it is the most powerful single chip, high power IRED available today.

Before the new products launched, Rigid engineers conducted a series of deliberately intense stress tests to prove that the lights can endure the most extreme real-world off-road conditions. To simulate what can happen when you mix hard-core off-road driving with intense dirt trails and harsh environmental elements, Rigid pushes its products to the breaking point to see how they perform through a series of abusive tests that include using hammers and saws. This type of testing ensures Rigid’s products far exceed the performance needed for a tough and reliable off-road lighting application. Read More→
